Disc brakes get green light

Multisport Mecca - - News -

BIKES with disc brakes can be used at cy­cling road races across Aus­tralia.

Cy­cling Aus­tralia has given the green light to the new brakes, which have rapidly be­come com­mon­place on the lat­est road bikes.

Rac­ing events in­clude club, state and non-UCI na­tional cham­pi­onship level road races.

The new stance is hoped to en­cour­age and al­low more peo­ple to get in­volved in rac­ing, par­tic­u­larly at the lo­cal club level.

“With the con­tin­ued up­take of road bikes with disc brakes by our mem­bers, it’s im­por­tant that Cy­cling Aus­tralia keeps up with in­dus­try’s progress and sup­port those at the grass­roots,” said tech­ni­cal com­mis­sion chair­man Peter Tom­lin­son.
